What time is it??

I've had such a hectic week and have not had time to stamp! I had a fun class yesterday at the AZ Scrapbooking store and today I'm giving a Make 'N Take for their grand opening. Hopefully tomorrow I can get back to creating.

So, since I have nothing new to show you I decided to post a clock I made about 4 years ago using a VERY retired stamp set. I made clocks for everyone for Christmas that year. I even sold a couple. They were fun to make and I tried to match the design to the person's personality or likes.

I purchased the clocks at Walmart for about $4 each and in a variety of colors. With great care I took off the plastic covering over the face, removed the hands (must remember the order to get them back on correctly so they'll work), and removed the paper face. I traced this face on cardstock, cut it out and decorated. I did have to mark where the "hours" were located in order to stamp in the proper positions. Then just reassemble!

So, what do you think??

And, Saturday we (us and my folks) will be going to Red Lobster in Tucson, AZ to celebrate our 28th anniversary (tomorrow is our actual anniversary) and my mom's 78th birthday (her day is the 28th). Also joining us will be my Aunt Joan (mom's sis) and cousin Bob. Dean was supposed to work again all weekend but he got Saturday off so we can celebrate. He worked every day for the last 2 weeks. Poor guy, he's pooped. But he got my lawn swing put up as my anniversary gift! I love sitting out under our awning on the swing drinking my coffee and watching the hummingbirds come in to feed. When we get the little fence put up I'll take a pic and post it on my personal blog so you can see the changes we've made since we moved here.
